Jay Shetty Quotes

#1

“Fast-forward where you are. Look at yourself in 10, 15, 20 years time and ask yourself the question: Is that where I want to be? If you’re in a company, look at the person who’s 20 years ahead of you and ask yourself: Is that where I want to be? If you’re in a start-up, look at where other startups have got to in similar roles and go: Is that where I want to be? And if the answer’s NO, then you need to find a new path.” – Jay Shetty

#19

Apology quote image

“We need to learn to accept apologies that we never received.” – Jay Shetty

50 Quotes About Empaths And Highly Sensitive People

#1

Empath quote image

Empaths be like… I don’t just listen to your words. I listen to your use of words, your tone, your body movements, your eyes, your subtle facial expressions. I interpret your silences – I can hear everything you don’t say in words.
– Unknown

#2

Highly sensitive people are too often perceived as weaklings or damaged goods. To feel intensely is not a symptom of weakness, it is the trademark of the truly alive and compassionate. It is not the empath who is broken, it is society that has become dysfunctional and emotionally disabled. There is no shame in expressing your authentic feelings. Those who are at times described as being a ‘hot mess’ or having ‘too many issues’ are the very fabric of what keeps the dream alive for a more caring, humane world. Never be ashamed to let your tears shine a light in this world.”
– Anthon St. Maarten

#3

“As an empath, it’s vital that you learn how to hold space for your emotions, even the most painful ones. By anchoring yourself in your breath, you can learn how to witness the emotional energy of others within you, without attaching yourself to these sensations.”
– Mateo Sol

#4

Intuitive empaths have a more profound grasp of other people’s emotions. Due to this rare trait, they feel the thrill of their surroundings more intensely than others do. In turn, it is almost impossible for them to ignore these senses. Luckily, unlike other empaths, intuitive empaths can control what and how this energy affects them. They can direct this distinct talent towards helping others.”
– Katya Ki

#5

“It’s this thing I have. I’m sorry if it scared you. I feel other people’s feelings. I imagine crumbling insides and splitting hearts, goodbyes that hang in the air before they break into tiny pieces. I hear words that aren’t said, the echoes of lonely hallways and hollow footsteps. I hear sobs that soak pillowcases when all the lights are out and the world is sleeping. I carry this inside of me, all of it.

I knew you paced the floor at night, trying to walk over all the things you didn’t want me to know. But I felt every wound you ever endured when I rested against you. I felt the ache that I have, deep inside of me, on your lips. Every time we kissed, I tasted a lifetime of tangled paths and bumpy roads woven with joined hands. Love isn’t blind, you see. I felt everything you were and could be, if only you stopped hiding in the same darkness you sheltered me from. I knew who you could become if someone loved you just right. I’m sorry if that scared you.

Just in case you were wondering, I still love you and I’ll keep the lights dim. Come home.”
– Jacqueline Simon Gunn

#6

Empaths did not come into this world to be victims, we came to be warriors. Be brave. Stay strong. We need all hands on deck.”
– Anthon St. Maarten

#7

Heyoka empaths act as mirrors of our persona. They exploit light energies to open people’s minds and heal. They also rarely take things seriously. Heyokas are excellent at making jokes, to make light of a situation. However, when they take their mask off, it itches.”
– Katya Ki

#8

“Love, to empaths, isn’t just a shallow experience based on looks, social status or great sex. Instead, love is something that comes from the very heart and soul of what an empath is. Love is intense passion, unconditional devotion, and absolute fierce vulnerability.”
– Aletheia Luna

#9

quote about empathy image

“Empathy is about finding echoes of another person in yourself”
– Mohsin Hamid

#10

“The struggle of my life created empathy – I could relate to pain, being abandoned, having people not love me.”
– Oprah Winfrey

#11

“The sad thing that many of us empaths don’t realize is that often our desire to heal others is a disguised cry for help for our own healing. Because many of us weren’t taught how to value or nurture ourselves at a young age, we tend to unconsciously seek out our own healing in the healing of others.”
– Mateo Sol

#12

“As empaths, our high level of sensitivity means that we are prone to feeling like eternal outsiders who are in the world but not quite of the world.”
– Aletheia Luna

#13

Empathy is really the opposite of spiritual meanness. It’s the capacity to understand that every war is both won and lost. And that someone else’s pain is as meaningful as your own.
– Barbara Kingsolver

#14

Empaths feel more deeply, more intensely, and more persistently than those around us. We even feel what other people are afraid to feel within themselves.”
– Mateo Sol

#15

“As a heyoka empath, your mind and heart will function independently. It is possible to discern over difficult situations without your emotions coming to play. This does not necessarily imply that you are heartless or cold, but rather that you can make sound decisions without your emotions affecting you. It is quite elusive telling what a heyoka empath is feeling unless you are one yourself. Heyokas can detect flaws in people around them but they won’t openly disclose them.”
– Katya Ki

#16

“Why is sensitivity perceived as being dangerous? When we’re sensitive, we feel things we were taught not to feel. When we’re sensitive, we are completely open to attack. When we’re sensitive, we are awake and in touch with our hearts – and this can be very threatening to the status quo indeed.”
– Aletheia Luna

#17

“Everything in existence is energy and gives off waves. Empaths are merely magnets for those energy waves, some feeling small crests while others live bombarded with tidal waves.”
– Jennifer Soldner

#18

“Dear empath:
You are a being of immense depth, wisdom, and compassion. You are a pioneer and trailblazer of humanity, a model for others on how to be sensitive and powerful. All the strength and love you need is already within you, waiting to be discovered.”
– Mateo Sol

#19

Empaths don’t see the world as other people do. They process things in a completely different pattern and think outside the box. Relating well with heyoka empaths requires that you stay open-minded. A heyoka will focus on the light side of a situation. And that’s how they come up with solutions. From the Native Americans’ perspective, heyokas would disrupt other people to startle them or shift their point of focus.”
– Katya Ki

#20

Quote About Highly Sensitive People Image

“Now, more than ever, our society is in need of sensitive and empathic people. Now, more than ever, the human race needs to go inwards and connect with the Soul again. As natural-born healers, intuitives, and mentors, it is not only our responsibility but also our destiny to help humanity heal.”
– Aletheia Luna

#21

“I believe empathy is the most essential quality of civilization.”
– Roger Ebert

#22

“Intuition is a wonderful gift but it can be both a blessing and a curse. If you can easily tune in to the grief of another, it is very easy to lose your way if you have not yet resolved your own present or past trauma and grief. If you have not healed from your own grief and you turn around and give all you have to give, you will find yourself drowning. Soon there will be nothing left of you.”
– Kate McGahan

#23

“It is so important for us as empaths to maintain a sense of connectedness with life. When we put up walls to protect ourselves, we end up exhausting, victimizing, and alienating ourselves. It is far more satisfying, effective, and healthy to work with our gifts, rather than against them.”
– Aletheia Luna

#24

“The highly sensitive [introverted] tend to be philosophical or spiritual in their orientation, rather than materialistic or hedonistic. They dislike small talk. They often describe themselves as creative or intuitive. They dream vividly, and can often recall their dreams the next day. They love music, nature, art, physical beauty. They feel exceptionally strong emotions–sometimes acute bouts of joy, but also sorrow, melancholy, and fear. Highly sensitive people also process information about their environments–both physical and emotional – unusually deeply. They tend to notice subtleties that others miss – another person’s shift in mood, say, or a lightbulb burning a touch too brightly.”
– Susan Cain

#25

“The very best thing we can do for others isn’t soaking up their pain, it is actually holding space for them. Holding space for a person means giving them the room to grieve or vent while still maintaining our own boundaries.”
– Mateo Sol

#26

Heyokas thrive when they are away from crowds. As with all other types of empaths, crowds drain their energy. It is impossible to control the energy of everyone around them and that is why heyokas prefer being in their own company. Alone time gives a heyoka enough time to decompress from all the negative energy they take in and re-energize.”
– Katya Ki

#27

“Resisting, identifying with, and suppressing emotions is the number one reason why we become so sick and overwhelmed as empaths. But the more embracing and accommodating you are towards the emotions you feel, without identifying with them, the more quickly they leave.”
– Aletheia Luna

#28

There’s always someone in your life that asks and expects an awful lot from you. And because you are a super-sensitive person with a great capacity for empathy and kindness, you comply. But sometimes you take it too far. You give more than you should. You are loyal to people who don’t deserve your loyalty. And you stand by those you care for even when they have deserted you emotionally. When this “person” asks again, do yourself a favor instead, and say NO.
– Unknown

#29

“I grew up weird – very sensitive and highly inhibited. I felt like I was born in the wrong time zone to the wrong people at the wrong place.”
– Marla Gibbs

#30

“There are only two kinds of people who can drain your energy: those you love, and those you fear. In both instances, it is you who let them in. They did not force their way into your aura, or pry their way into your reality experience.”
– Anthon St. Maarten

#31

“Unfortunately, in the empath community, creating boundaries is often approached with a fearful mindset instead of the desire to become fully mature and individuated beings. This fearful mindset often gives rise to terms such as “protection,” “cloaking,” “shielding,” and so forth. Instead of using empowering terms, we empaths tend to use phrases that suggest minimizing or hiding away from others instead of stepping into our natural power.”
– Aletheia Luna

#32

quote about empaths and sensitive people image

Some say I’m too sensitive but the truth is I just feel too much. Every word, every action and every energy goes straight to my heart.
– Unknown

#33

“The shamanic Quechuan word for empath is “Qawaq” which means “one who sees.” It comes from the verb “Qaway” which means “to see” the living energy. The Incas believe that people born with the ability to experience the energy of others have a great blessing as they are able to connect to their Souls and the Spirit of existence much more easily than others.”
– Mateo Sol

#34

“As empaths, we are not here to be sponges or enablers. We are here to be helpers, guides, and supporters.”
– Aletheia Luna

#35

“Sensitive people care when the world doesn’t because we understand waiting to be rescued and no one shows up. We have rescued ourselves, so many times that we have become self-taught in the art of compassion for those forgotten.”
– Shannon L. Alder

#36

“Yes, the people around us can be insensitive, narcissistic, toxic, and sometimes even abusive, but it is up to us to take that energy on or let it flow through us. No one is responsible for taking away our happiness but us.”
– Aletheia Luna

#37

“Sometimes your experience with a heyoka empath may leave you dissatisfied. This is because heyokas are mirrors and only reflect that which is presented to them. So if you project negative energy the same will be reflected back to you. This honest reflection will show you what you need to work on to become a better version of you.”
– Katya Ki

#38

“I don’t know if it’s because my sensitivity is through the roof, but I can’t stand contrived dialogue anymore.”
– Jeff Baena

#39

“As highly sensitive empaths, we are particularly prone to experiencing the Dark Night of the Soul. The less defined our sense of self is and the more toxic energy we take on from others, the more we are prone to losing touch with our Souls.”
– Aletheia Luna

#40

I hate having to do small talk. I’d rather talk about deep subjects. I’d rather talk about meditation, or the world, or the trees or animals, than small, inane, you know, banter.
– Ellen Degeneres

#41

“Because empaths can see the world through their partner’s point of view, they frequently tend to completely mesh with the viewpoints of their abusers. So when an empath is told that he or she is uncaring from a narcissistic partner, the empath will genuinely feel as though they are a horrible person due to the fact that they can feel and embody the emotions of their partners.”
– Aletheia Luna

#42

“Many people confuse empaths for weak people who are nothing but scared. The opposite is true. When surrounded by positive energy they flourish into lovely creatures that are so much fun to hang around.”
– Katya Ki

#43

“Opinion is really the lowest form of human knowledge. It requires no accountability, no understanding. The highest form of knowledge… is empathy, for it requires us to suspend our egos and live in another’s world. It requires profound purpose larger than the self kind of understanding.”
– Bill Bullard

#44

my personality confuses people image

My personality confuses people. I enjoy being alone, a lot, but I’m very outgoing and social. My environment dictates how I behave. Sometimes I’m loud, sometimes I’m quiet. I read the energy and adjust. Sometimes I want to tune up and sometimes I just need a book and alone time.
– Sylvester McNutt III

#45

Empaths don’t act fake. They get quiet.
– Jane Lightworker

#46

Note to empath:
Observe, don’t absorb.
– Unknown

#47

I am sensitive. I love deeply. I think deeply about life. I am honest, loyal, and true. I appreciate the simple things. I will not change or harden to this world. It is this sensitivity, perception, sincerity, awareness, affection, and gentle grace that makes me who I am.
– Unknown

#49

All empaths can feel if someone is genuine or not. Unaware empaths often disregard the red flags. Empowered empaths listen to their intuition right away.
– Jane Lightworker

#50

I am an empath. I can hear what you are not saying.
– Unknown

“As I began to love myself I found that anguish and emotional suffering are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth. Today, I know, this is “AUTHENTICITY”.

As I began to love myself I understood how much it can offend somebody if I try to force my desires on this person, even though I knew the time was not right and the person was not ready for it, and even though this person was me. Today I call it “RESPECT”.

As I began to love myself I stopped craving for a different life, and I could see that everything that surrounded me was inviting me to grow. Today I call it “MATURITY”.

As I began to love myself I understood that at any circumstance, I am in the right place at the right time, and everything happens at the exactly right moment. So I could be calm. Today I call it “SELF-CONFIDENCE”.

As I began to love myself I quit stealing my own time, and I stopped designing huge projects for the future. Today, I only do what brings me joy and happiness, things I love to do and that make my heart cheer, and I do them in my own way and in my own rhythm. Today I call it “SIMPLICITY”.

As I began to love myself I freed myself of anything that is no good for my health – food, people, things, situations, and everything that drew me down and away from myself. At first, I called this attitude a healthy egoism. Today I know it is “LOVE OF ONESELF”.

As I began to love myself I quit trying to always be right, and ever since I was wrong less of the time. Today I discovered that is “MODESTY”.

As I began to love myself I refused to go on living in the past and worrying about the future. Now, I only live for the moment, where everything is happening. Today I live each day, day by day, and I call it “FULFILLMENT”.

As I began to love myself I recognized that my mind can disturb me and it can make me sick. But as I connected it to my heart, my mind became a valuable ally. Today I call this connection “WISDOM OF THE HEART”.

“Document the moments you feel most in love with yourself – what you’re wearing, who you’re around, what you’re doing. Recreate and repeat.”
– Warsan Shire

#34

“The better you feel about yourself, the less you feel the need to show off.”
– Robert Hand

#35

“Many people believe that certain achievements in life will help them love themselves more. But this is far from reality! Neither a career, nor an expensive car, nor a luxurious mansion on the beach, nor designer clothes, will make you love yourself. All this luxury can only enhance your ego, but self-love will never depend on such things. And it is very important to understand this! You don’t need a reason to love yourself. True love is always born for no reason. We start to love ourselves just like that, here and now, just the way we are.”
– Katya Ki

#36

“The most powerful relationship you will ever have is the relationship with yourself.”
– Steve Maraboli

#37

“When nobody celebrates you, learn to celebrate yourself. When nobody compliments you, then compliment yourself. It’s not up to other people to keep you encouraged. It’s up to you. Encouragement should come from the inside.”
– Joel Osteen

#38

“I am my own experiment. I am my own work of art.”
– Madonna

#39

Louise Hay On Criticizing Yourself Image

“You have been criticizing yourself for years, and it hasn’t worked. Try approving of yourself and see what happens.”
– Louise Hay

#40

“I am so beautiful, sometimes people weep when they see me. And it has nothing to do with what I look like really, it is just that I gave myself the power to say that I am beautiful, and if I could do that, maybe there is hope for them too. And the great divide between the beautiful and the ugly will cease to be. Because we are all what we choose.”
– Margaret Cho

#41

“It’s not your job to like me…it’s MINE!”
– Byron Katie

#42

“People who love themselves come across as very loving, generous and kind; they express their self-confidence through humility, forgiveness and inclusiveness.”
– Sanaya Roman

#43

“Plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.”
– Veronica A. Shoffstall

#44

“Confidence is knowing who you are and not changing it a bit because of someone’s version of reality is not your reality.”
– Shannon L. Alder

#45

“Stop putting people on the pedestal. Stop thinking that someone might be better than you are or worse. Learn not to compare yourself to other people. If you accept and love your uniqueness (which, as I have already said, consists of those qualities that society calls “imperfections”), then you realize that any comparison is inappropriate! You are who you are. No one is better or worse than you. Destroy all the pedestals that you have created. And understand that all people are equal. Don’t idealize anyone. We’re all just humans – nobody is perfect! Besides that the ideal is always dead, there is no movement, there is no need for development. So throw away all those thoughts about reaching this illusional ideal level of yourself. Stop this race to perfection! It doesn’t make any sense!”
– Katya Ki

#46

“To love yourself right now, just as you are, is to give yourself heaven. Don’t wait until you die. If you wait, you die now. If you love, you live now.”
– Alan Cohen

#47

“One of the best guides to how to be self-loving is to give ourselves the love we are often dreaming about receiving from others. There was a time when I felt lousy about my over-forty body, saw myself as too fat, too this, or too that. Yet I fantasized about finding a lover who would give me the gift of being loved as I am. It is silly, isn’t it, that I would dream of someone else offering to me the acceptance and affirmation I was withholding from myself. This was a moment when the maxim “You can never love anybody if you are unable to love yourself” made clear sense. And I add, “Do not expect to receive the love from someone else you do not give yourself.”
– Bell Hooks

#48

“A healthy self-love means we have no compulsion to justify to ourselves or others why we take vacations, why we sleep late, why we buy new shoes, why we spoil ourselves from time to time. We feel comfortable doing things which add quality and beauty to life.”
Andrew Matthews

#49

Love Yourself Quotes Image

“Celebrate who you are in your deepest heart. Love yourself and the world will love you.”
– Amy Leigh Mercree

#50

“Don’t rely on someone else for your happiness and self-worth. Only you can be responsible for that. If you can’t love and respect yourself – no one else will be able to make that happen. Accept who you are – completely; the good and the bad – and make changes as YOU see fit – not because you think someone else wants you to be different.”
– Stacey Charter

#51

“We can’t be so desperate for love that we forget where we can always find it within.”
– Alexandra Elle

#52

“I think the most important thing in life is self-love, because if you don’t have self-love, and respect for everything about your own body, your own soul, your own capsule, then how can you have an authentic relationship with anyone else?”
– Shailene Woodley

#53

“I come across too much material on “how to make a man want you”, “how to make a man commit”, “how to make a man finally pop the question”, “how to make a man take you seriously”, “how to get into a man’s emotions.” And I laugh. My dear fellow women, enough! Do not busy yourself with such things! Instead, fall in love with yourself!”
– C. JoyBell C.

#54

“Self-love can’t exist without self-respect. Learn to respect yourself, your time and space! Free your space from negative people, as well as from those people with who you are uncomfortable with or who are not interesting for you to communicate with. Free yourself from those people who steal your energy. Stop talking to people who only talk about themselves, but are never interested in you. Change your environment! As soon as you free yourself from people you don’t resonate with, you will attract a new environment into your life. From now on surround yourself only with people you enjoy interacting with.”
– Katya Ki

#55

“Loving yourself isn’t vanity. It is sanity.”
– Katrina Mayer

#56

“If you don’t love yourself, you won’t be happy with yourself. If you can’t love yourself, you can’t love anyone else. You can’t give the love you do not have. You can’t make anyone love you without loving yourself first.”
– Kemi Sogunle

#57

“Self-love has very little to do with how you feel about your outer self. It’s about accepting all of yourself.”
– Tyra Banks

#58

“Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.”
– Lucille Ball

#59

“Love is the great miracle cure. Loving ourselves works miracles in our lives.”
– Louise Hay

“To fall in love with yourself is the first secret to happiness.”
– Robert Morely

#61

“You’re always with yourself, so you might as well enjoy the company.”
– Diane Von Furstenberg

#62

“Love yourself unconditionally, just as you love those closest to you despite their faults.”
– Les Brown

#63

“Every time you step over yourself in order to not offend someone, you show a deep disrespect for yourself and the absence of self-love.”
– Katya Ki

#64

“Self-love is the elixir of an immortal heart.”
– Amy Leigh Mercree

#65

The journey isn’t about becoming a different person. It’s about loving who you are right now.
– Suzanne Heyn

#66

There is nothing rarer, nor more beautiful, than a woman being unapologetically herself; comfortable in her perfect imperfection. To me, that is the essence of beauty.
– Steve Maraboli

#67

Be careful how you are talking to yourself because you are listening.
– Lisa Hayes

#68

In a society that profits from your self-doubt, liking yourself is a rebellious act.
– Caroline Cardwell

#69

Be the love you never received.
– Rune Lazuli

#70

The highest form of intelligence is to view yourself without judgment.
Jiddu Krishnamurti
